’Land of the Extremes’ Exhibition Opens At FNCC

“Namibian, Land of the Extremes,” exhibition by Freelances photographers Belgian born Elyane and Cedric Jacquet opens on Monday at the Franco Namibia Cultural Centre (FNCC) Gallery.

The Jacquets are travelling the world, and Namibia is one of their favourite destinations and feels like a second home to them. The couple will also give an Art Talk “a photographic journey through land of the extremes,” about their photography at the FNCC cinema on Thursday. Born both in 1968, they have developed a passion for photography and wildlife during a 6-month trip from Zanzibar to Cape Town in 1993. During that trip they fell in love with Namibia and considered moving here to open an animal orphanage. Eventually they returned to Europe. A few years later, the passion for photography won, and they became freelance in 2003.

Elyane developed her trade in portrait and travel photography, while Cedric concentrated on nature and wildlife photography. Since then, they have been traveling the world over. With this exhibition they will share their vision “of a land of beauty”. On their Art Talk they will share their passion for photography and wildlife with the public relating some of the stories behind their images and talk about the increasingly vital relationship between their art and the conservation of environment, endangered species and their natural habitat. The exhibition closes on May 9.
